‘lime-pocket’ is, you guessed it, a little jacket for a slice of citrus — an accessory made for adding a twist of lemon or lime to gin-based drinks. nendo designed the blue silicon skin for bombay sapphire to keep fingers clean and dry when squeezing a spritz of juice to a cocktail; which can also be easily hung on the edge of one’s glass. as a response to the difficulties of advertising the spirits that are used in a cocktail, ‘lime-pocket’ also features the bombay sapphire logo.

 

well, the designboom team deliberated over whether or not the ‘lime-pocket’ really is essential, and we’ve decided that we prefer our limes au naturel.
